Lipstick Indicator

I decided to start small. I decided to go the extra effort and wear lipstick to work. Lipgloss to be exact. And not only wear it when leaving the house at the beginning of the day, but REAPPLY it.

Compliments relating to my lipgloss/makeup: 0

Compliments relating to some other aspect of my appearance: 2

I got asked - "did you cut your hair?" during a morning meeting. Trust me, I did nothing with my hair.

Later in the day, I was complimented on my outfit and how the colour really suits me.

Is it possible that a little bit of lipgloss actually makes that big of an improvement on your appearance?!

  1. I like this reapplying of lips and to be honest always forget. Maybe my new small change!! Great Blog Mel.

  2. Hi cassietales, thanks for your comment! It is a simple change that's easy to make because -let's face it - don't we all have a few lipsticks and glosses floating around in our purses at any given time?

    Also, if you have a gloss/lipstick that also moisturizes at the same time, then it is giving you a colour and moisture boost!

  3. I totally agree with this, Mel. I find that a simple touch like lipstick or lip gloss can take you from looking and feeling "unfinished" to appearing "pulled together."

  4. Thanks for your comment Sam. Simple things can make a big difference. And the bonus is, it doesn't have to cost a lot.

  5. Lip gloss and mascara, the two pieces of makeup I can't leave the house without. Though after reading your blog I'm thinking maybe I should give lipstick a second chance. I always felt I looked to done up in it, and that it’s impossible to find the right shade.

  6. Thanks for your comment Alicia! I agree that mascara is one of my can't-live-without-it make-up tools.

    I love lip gloss as well. The great thing about lipstick is that it has a higher pigmentation than lip gloss which means it has greater staying power.

    If you're used to glosses, try testing out a lipstick that is sheer. It will last longer than a gloss but won't be as heavy as a lipstick.
